The gym

We set out with one goal in mind – to open a gym the likes of which the Forest of Dean has never seen before.

At Ironmasters we generally play our music loud, our metal plates clank and some of our members make some strange noises when going for heavy lifts. Entering a new gym for the first time can be intimidating, we understand that.

Once you step inside you'll be taking first step in the right direction to a better you, whatever your goal.

What our guests have to say

"Awesome gym with a wicked atmosphere. Continuous support which I have never received at any other gym I have been too."

"Fantastic gym with fantastic owners! Has all the equipment anyone would need and it's all kept tidy and maintained. Would recommend."

- Lewis

"Such helpful staff, a nice vibe and a great price for a day pass. Couldn't have asked for more... except that the whole place gets teleported to my home town!"

- Hannah

"THE place to train in the Forest of Dean if you’re serious about making progress! Awesome equipment, great vibe for anyone trying to better themselves and well worth a travel for a one-off session!"

- Andy
